Bouquet of White lilies

Posted by icyelite on July 19, 2008

On the 15th July 2008, this is the first time I received a bouquet of flowers and it is my favorite white lilies.

Flowers are very expensive that’s why I always tell my SO not to waste money. No matter what occasion it may be, I always tell my SO not to buy flowers for me. It may be a moment of happiness when you received it but the lifespan of flowers are short. In addition, sometimes I have a ‘paiseh’/shy feeling for taking flowers here and there.

There was once I received a stalk of champage rose from Le Baroque during 2006 Valentine’s Day, even though it is only a small stalk, I am still shy to take it on my hand walking around. Lucky that day I had a big bag with me to put it inside. 😀

However, on 15th July, I sincerely feel happy about taking that bouquet of flowers even though I hold it for awhile. I feel so honored carrying this bouquet of flowers. Looking around in the vicinity, I don’t see anyone carrying the same flower as me. Only me, carrying my beloved flowers.

The meaning of white lily: Purity, modesty, virginity, majesty, it’s heavenly to be with you. The white lily is linked to Juno, the queen of the gods in Roman mythology, by the story that while nursing her son Hercules, some excess milk fell from the sky creating the group of stars we call the Milky Way, and lilies were created from what milk fell to the earth. The Easter lily is also known as the symbol of the Virgin Mary.

Doesn’t the meaning of white lily sounds wow to you? To me, it has the meaning of purity, sincerity and it produces a trumpet sound in my heart.

Take a look at my bouquet of lilies:

Bouquet of White Lilies Wrapped in purple and white

How many flowers and leaves did the florist use? Let’s count.

Main flower – White Lilies
Round Green Flower Middle Purple/White/Pink Flower
Oblong-shaped Purple Flower Small Yellow Flower
Star-shaped Leaf Long Leaf

Wow. So many matching flowers, no wonder flower nice, price of the flowers also nice. Lol. Some of the flowers are expensive which explains why the bouquet is expensive too. I do not know the name of flowers, so just named it by their shape and colors. 😀

Bouquet Few Days Later – Bigger Lilies

It has been few days since I received the bouquet. I placed the bouquet in my living room, if you walk near it, you can smell the lovely lily smell. Can you notice that the lilies are growing bigger and bigger? One of the lilies is now as big as my hand. Praying hard that it won’t dry up so fast.
